Ode to Jesus

Ode to Jesus
Who gives direction to aimless wandering,
answers to curious wondering,
insight to ceaseless pondering.

Ode to Jesus
Who gives comfort to anguished weepers,
rest to weary sleepers,
Who is His brother’s keeper.

Ode to Jesus
Who holds feet to the fire,
proves satan a liar,
and rescues from the mire.

I’m no poet, but what the heck. Happy Valentine’s Day!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cupid’s Arrow.”
